At last, somebody is owning up to the Dennis Quaid freakout video, and it’s none other than the jokesters at Funny or Die.

In the extended video, released Wednesday morning, Quaid can be seen acting on a full view of the set — complete with literal “horse shit,” “zombies,” “pussies” and everything else he lambastes in the original cellphone video of the flip-out that went viral earlier this week.

As TheWrap previously reported, the 43-second YouTube clip, which appeared to have been shot on a cellphone, captured Quaid verbally flipping out on “the most unprofessional set” he’s ever been on.

“What the fuck? Keep going. I am acting here, and this dickhead here wanders on my set. I can’t even get a line out, until Dopey the dick starts whispering in your ear and you’re not even watching anymore,” the actor screamed. “Don’t fucking ‘Dennis’ me. I am doing my job here. I am a pro. This is the most unprofessional set I have ever been on. This is horse shit!”

Media reports and Internet forums like Reddit had previously speculated about whether the video was real or a hoax, and some suggested notorious viral video prankster Jimmy Kimmel was behind Quaid’s freakout. But Kimmel denied involvement on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” Tuesday night.

“When I woke up this morning, I was being blamed for it. There are two dozen articles — and thousands of comments online — suggesting that this is a prank, and I am responsible for it,” Kimmel said. “And I have to say, that’s disappointing. You play like 50 pranks and all of a sudden people don’t trust you anymore.

“Did you ever consider that maybe Dennis was doing voiceover for a new cartoon? That’s right — he’s playing ‘Dennis Duck,'” the late-night host joked.

Kimmel was the prime suspect for setting up a hoax similar to the “Worst Twerk Fail EVER — Girl Catches On Fire!” video that went viral in 2013 and was later revealed to be a skit for his show.

Quaid, 61, is no stranger to on-camera high jinks, either, having pranked unsuspecting people several times during appearances on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.”
